YOUR STORY: The Toowoomba Royal Show was a great opportunity for the Toowoomba and Districts Bromeliad Society to showcase some of the bromeliads that grow well in the district.

Many species of bromeliads were on display in various forms and colours with club members on hand, over the three days, to answer questions on growing.

Sincere thanks to the Floriculture section of the Toowoomba Show who welcomed and encouraged us.

We are making plans to return next year as it was a great opportunity to talk to many bromeliad enthusiasts.

Crow's Nest Show on May 7 is our next opportunity to showcase bromeliads and we extend our thanks to the Show Society for giving us this opportunity. Members will again be present to answer questions.

The Spring Show and Sale on the first weekend of the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers will be the club's highlight event of the year.

With around 50 club members, the public will be spoilt for choice of plants on offer to add to their collection, including succulents and cacti.

The club meets on the third Sunday of the month at Sacred Heart Primary School Hall, Wilsonton, from 1.30pm-4 pm and visitors are always welcome.

For more information, phone Robert or Sue on 4643 7438 or 0412 263 332 or go to www.bromeliadstoowoomba.com.au.
